What could be better? Great food and stories

We had a terrific time! Didn't realize most of the tour would be inside in one building but that turned out to be a plus since the weather was rainy. Our guide, Daryl, was an actor with a flair who made all of his stories interesting and catchy. The whole experience was well worthwhile. Just don't plan on eating for several hours afterwards.

The tour guide was very personable and well versed in the West Village area and the local fare. The tour was fun as well as informative and the various servings of food were just delicious! A wonderful way to spend the afternoon outdoors - eating drinking and learning about such a charming part of the City.

Wonderful, informative tour. Lots of interesting facts packed into a small space. Terrific food from a variety of ethnicities. Generous portions and very tasty. Attentive and personable tour guide. Highlight of our trip to NYC.

A very worthwhile experience

Despite continuous rain/sleet, the tour went ahead under the very capable leadership of Barri(e?). We visited some lovely shops/cafes/restaurants, all with their own unique style and providing quality produce, we sampled several during the tour. I had never tasted 'cannoli' before. We returned to 2 restaurants, 2 cafes and one shop during the days following the tour. Our guide also pointed out many places of architectural and cultural interest during the 3 hour tour. We will definitely book for other tours with this company on our next visit to New York and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to friends and others.

Wonderful group outing for foodie friends!
Tue, Mar 8, 11   11:30 AM mollyfirst Unspecified Unspecified International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We were a group of adults with teens who enjoyed this tour so much on a sunny mild day in March, eating delicious samples on the streets of Greenwich Village with our guide, and inside at Soy and Sake as well. We all learned so much and then spent time shopping at some of the stores we visited on the tour, and can't wait to try out our purchases together when we get home - don't know if we can create the same moments of food heaven back home, but we'll try. Our guide was helpful, informative, well-prepared, and patient too - would definitely do another one of your tours when we return to NYC again.

Fantastic time in Chinatown

My wife and I highly recommend this tour. Not only will you be shown where the great restaurants are, but you will also be introduced to some great tasting authentic Chinese cuisine.

More of a walking tour than a food tour
Sun, Jan 2, 11   11:30 AM duwelk Unspecified Unspecified Local Couple on a Date
The food was good, but the information was better. The food tastings were light and didn't include any interaction with the owners, only the tour guide. Generally very good, but would have liked to see more food as it is a "food tour".

Perfect for out-of-towners

Great tour!!! My first trip to NYC, first day, first everything. The tour was a great intro to the Village. Great insight and historical reference. The food was much better than I expected it to be. Portions were good. Fun group, and a great tour guide. Well worth the $$$. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Good Intro to Neighborhood and Variety of Cuisine
Thu, Dec 30, 10   12:30 PM yalongflor Unspecified Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The selections are a good introduction to the choices available of purveyors and not just restaurants in the neighborhood.

I chose this tour over the others offered by the same company because of the variety of cuisines. Though we did have Indian, Middle Eastern, and Cuban, it would be better to have more of the 'other' world cuisines that we kept passing by. The tastings themselves were good fare, not spectacular, but I was full by the end of the tour.

Despite the piles of snow and slush all over, the temps were mild enough that it was not torture to stand around on the sidewalk.

Our guide, Rahim, was very enthusiastic, knowledgeable, organized, and clearly enjoys what he's doing.

All good!
Wed, Nov 17, 10   11:30 AM Bencaud Unspecified 30-39 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Very well done, the last part in the old part of Greenwich was very good, we really liked it! between Hudson Street and 7th avenue. Restaurants were good and the guide tour "Heather" was very professional. We did the Chelsea market tour the day after and we were less Enthusiastic, ones again we liked the outdoor part on Meatpacking district.

I think it is worth organising tour in other languages as there is a lot to learn in Greenwich area history.

Great Tour

The best food tour we have been on yet. Our guide was fun and informative. Great food selections. Followed through on my request to do something special for my wife's birthday.

We would certainly use this company again.
